Subject: A classic
This book is of course a classic in chess literature. Although written in archaic style using symbols no longer in general use, it is a good way for students of chess to see where so many of our principles came from. It is in this book that capablanca lays out the fundamental principle of openings that he who controls the center is in a better position to attack. It is not a book to read from cover to cover but one to page through to find little gems on which to linger.
